Hiring a landscaper for 2018? Make sure they are being ‘green’ about it. Ask them to use a mulching mower so that the grass clippings can feed your lawn. That is the best food your lawn can have.

If you have pets or children, love nature and respect your neighbors, avoid pesticides. If you kill the bugs, you kill the soil. There will be fewer birds, amphibians.
